I'm Not In Japan. Mark Masai's Comment That Made Him Hero And Villain

On Friday evening, during the Presidential Round Table interview, one bold exchange of words caught the attention of Kenyans. Journalist Mark Masai was asking questions about Kenya's public debt when President Uhuru Kenyatta decided to take him head on. The President tried to pin him on the lack of expression of numbers like an economist. That's is when Mr Masai bit back,saying he was not in Japan.

In the wake of a ballooning public debt in the country, many have raised concerns on the amount of debt Kenya takes. Furthermore, what hurts most Kenyans is how the borrowed money is still lost to corruption.

Masai: Yes
Kenyatta: What is it?
Masai : 4.5 trillion shillings
